Zinsser Grade 1 is an exceptional, high-performance paint specifically designed for the interior decoration of walls and ceilings in traditional and historic buildings. Whether it's a church, castle, or period property, Grade 1 is the perfect choice.
When working on such properties, it's crucial to meet their specific requirements. Standard primers and emulsions can trap moisture, leading to flaking and cracking of the finish. However, the unique formula of Zinsser Grade 1 is specially developed to address all the challenges that arise in period properties.
Grade 1 serves as a primer, sealer, and finish in one, eliminating the need for additional priming or washing down. With a quick two-hour re-coating time, it provides convenience without compromising quality. Its vapor-permeable film allows the painted substrate to breathe, ensuring long-lasting performance.
This remarkable paint contains a biocide that safeguards the dried coating against fungal degradation. Additionally, its low-tension drying process minimizes the risk of future cracking, flaking, and peeling. Grade 1 can be applied on various substrates such as plaster, concrete, mortar, chalky materials, distemper, limewash, and whitewash. It's suitable for walls, ceilings, doors, trims, windows, and cabinetry.
Not only is Grade 1 virtually odorless, but it also offers unparalleled stain-blocking capabilities, effectively concealing stains from soot, smoke, water, graffiti, and nicotine. Choose Zinsser Grade 1 for outstanding performance and protection in your traditional and historic projects.
